Types of Shingles
Modern Wood Shingles Roofing Greenville NC
Modern shakes that are commercially available are usually thicker than the old hand-split ones and usually are left with a rough and corrugated surface. They bring an antique feel that can be mistaken for vintage when in actuality it is rather modern in comparison.
Some designs are pre-cut with ornamental designs and are often referred to as fancy-cut shingles and made for future painting. The sides are rectangular, squared and re-butted, meaning that the sides are parallel and the bottom quadratic to the side.
A shake is a basic wooden shingle, manufactured from split logs. Typically, shakes are used for roofing and siding applications worldwide. Typically for roofing, higher-grade shakes are used in roofing while lesser grades are employed in siding. In both cases, correctly installed shakes provide durable weather protection, while maintainance may be more more than for other more contemporary options.
